It's almost as if Johns went out of his way to make the Huntress unlikable. Being a character who's only had a handful of appearances since the 80s, she's still quite popular. There is still a demand for her. Yet, in the annual, she's not sure of herself, she comes across as weak, and this whole "incestuous" thing with Robin just tarnishes the image even more. It's almost as if he's throwing it in our faces, "Is this who you want back? Look at her, she's weak, she's incompetent, she's in love with the guy who is like a brother to her."
I don't know. I just feel like Geoff's dropped the ball on the current title. Too much is going on with too huge a cast. There was the League, the Legion, Kingdom Come, and way too many new characters.
The original Earth-Two held a very special place in my heart; still does. Call me whatever names you want, that's fine, but there was a certain charm about the original world. The JSA was the original super-team. They were more than that, they were a family. They aged, married, had children retired, new heroes came. It's too Super-Hero High School now. I like how the JSA told Infinity Inc. to come back later. Now it's completely different. I don't know why it couldn't have continued as an "Elseworlds" title.
Okay, sorry, didn't mean to go on. I'm not downing Johns. I'm just saying the current title lacks the charm of the earlier JSA. True, tastes change, but I've read so many posts of fans getting excited about the annual, and I wouldn't allow myself because I knew I wasn't going to get COIE the Sequel. Like I said, good but disappointing.
